Trayshrink Packer for Reducing Packaging Materials

Standard-Knapp, Portland, Conn., released the 298 Tritium Trayshrink Packer with Robo-Wand wrapping module, a single machine that can pack in three pack Standard-Knapp 298 Tritiumstyles—tray, pad or unsupported.

The flexible and versatile 298 Tritium Trayshrink Packer is ideal for co-packers who need to produce more with less packaging materials. The horizontally loaded tray blank magazine is ergonomically designed for ease of use and simplified maintenance. Operators can load blanks without bending or stretching and can quickly spot any operational issues. The large tray blank magazine now comes standard with a 1,500-blank capacity and can be extended to hold 3,000 or more blanks. And, the machine was designed to run unsupported, so changing to pad or tray style can be done in 15 minutes by simply selecting a new product on the operator interface screen and a small number of changeover parts.

The 298 Tritium Trayshrink Packer’s side film stand makes it easy to load new rolls of film. With its slide-out film bed drawer and clam shell-style design, operators can quickly recover from a jam. A new meter product in-feed is equipped with electronic sensors that create consistent low line pressure to allow for positive grouping and escapement of product. Plus, the in-feed guarantees steady release of product, with no tipping, product damage or mis-packs.

The machine’s high-speed Robo-Wand wrapping module can be fully customized to follow the height and length of the final pack pattern, providing a consistent, tight, wrinkle-free wrap. With the ability to run up to 120 trays per minute, the Robo-Wand also offers multi-axis control for limitless packing possibilities without the need for change parts.
